Rock and Roll Feature: Freak Out with the Mothers of Invention

This is the seventeenth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

James Taylor: One Man Band

A few nights ago I was watching PBS again (no surprise by now I expect) and I caught another interesting concert event: James Taylor: One Man Band. The show was songs taken from the CD/DVD set of the same name that was released just last year. Now, I'm not a huge James Taylor fan compared to some, but I do appreciate his music and thing many of his songs and many of he early albums are complete classics. I've seen James Taylor live before, but this particular event really caught my eye because it is just Taylor on stage with his guitar(s) and keyboardist/pianist Larry Goldings.

Crossroads Guitar Festival 2007 Concert Footage: A DVD Review

Way back in July, I was lucky enough to attend the 2007 Crossroads guitar festival, held right here in the Chicagoland area. Just recently, I finally got the check out the DVD release to commemorate this unique concert event. There were tons of great performances that day, so I've been looking forward to viewing this DVD for a while now and seeing what songs/artists/collaborations were chosen and how the footage looks.

The Song Remains the Same Part 2: A DVD Set Review

For the past few days I've had the pleasure of screening part two of the new The Song Remains the Same release. I was pretty excited about finally seeing the film to go with the soundtrack and the bonuses certainly sweeten the deal a little.

The Song Remains the Same Part 1: An Album Review

I don't know about the rest of you, but for me, one of the most exciting album releases in 2007 was definitely the expanded version of Led Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Same. This re-master and re-release was for both the original film on DVD and the soundtrack and was timed perfectly to coincide with a little reunion show the band was planning.

Rock & Roll Feature: Radiohead Plays the Colors of In Rainbows

This is the fourteenth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

The Piano Man Comes to Chicago: A Concert Review

It's been a good year for concerts, perhaps one of the best I've had in a while in terms of big names. I wish I could have gone to more (my hearing and wallet might think otherwise), but I can't really complain because the shows I saw this year were some of the best rock and roll concerts I've ever been to. A few days ago I was able to catch the "Piano Man" himself, Billy Joel, here in Chicago, and the trend of great concerts continued.

Rock & Roll Feature: Led Zeppelin, Birth of the Legend

This is the thirteenth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.
